Week 6 Opponent: Dallas Cowboys
I hate to do this to a legend like Brett Favre, but you must replace this withering quarterback with someone new on your fantasy roster. He might just be off to a slow start, but I see more than that.
Favre has already said that he'd be willing to sit out a game to rest his elbow if his tendinitis gets worse. That is not Favre-like. This is not the Brett Favre that football fans have known and loved for years.
He has always been known as a warrior, but for him to even contemplate sitting out in Week 6 tells me that this is not the same Brett Favre that has been in the NFL for the last 20 years. Either that or the tendinitis is that bad, which can cause a progressing problem throughout the season, leading him to miss some games and perform worse than he really should.
Although he threw quite well in the second half against the Jets in Week 5, Favre has struggled continuously this season. Brett has led the Vikings to an embarrassing 1-3 start this year, and by the looks of their remaining schedule, it will continue to get worse. This is a new phase of Brett Favre, and most likely the end.
I'm not saying to just cut him, but shop him around a bit. Put Favre on the trading block or offer a couple of opposing teams some trades involving him. You should at least be able to snag someone's backup QB for the future Hall of Famer, or even get a steal deal from a Favre fanatic.
